I can’t wait to return with my family!
As the Entrepreneur Experience came to an end, I came away with 3 Powerful Questions that Amy Porterfield asked of us.
What is your security blanket?
How do you define a Breakthrough Year in 2018?
What will you do differently in 2018 to hit that Breakthrough?
Looking back on my 2017, I learned my security blanket was trying to do too much and not mastering any one thing.
I wanted to try EVERYTHING ……podcasts, blogs, webinars, Facebook Live, course building, one-on-one coaching, networking, seminars, mastermind roundtable, teaching, speaking, continuing education, and on and on. And honestly, I was getting overwhelmed and frustrated by the lack of completion.
I am goal-oriented so not completing my tasks was causing me a dilemma. ?
Can anyone relate?
So….. In 2018, I am letting go of my security blanket of “busyness” and focusing on:
- prioritizing my goals
- taking one step at a time
- and setting time limits on myself to accomplish each goal.
What is your Security blanket?
What have you held onto in 2017 that has kept you from achieving your goals?
What do you need to let go of or say “NO” to in order to accomplish your dreams?
The 2nd Powerful question that Amy asked was,
“How do you define a Breakthrough Year in 2018?”
The keyword here is “define.” This means being specific about what you want in 2018.
Write it down so you can LOOK ? at it everyday as a reminder.
For example, I want to fully launch my Business Startup Course Online and sell enough courses, in the first quarter of 2018, to take my family of 9 on an all expense paid vacation to Coronado Bay in San Diego for Christmas Vacation 2018!
Is that specific enough? Yes!
Is that asking too much?
Of course not! I’m setting that Breakthrough goal.
If you were to step into the future to December 31, 2018, what would have to happen for you to have a Breakthrough Year? Acquire 10 more clients? Sell 15 more pieces of art? Speak at 2 additional events? Whatever will catapult you to that Breakthrough in 2018 is what you need to DEFINE.
The 3rd Powerful question was,
“What will you do differently in 2018 to hit that Breakthrough Year?”
I will be saying, “NO” to the things that aren’t helping me work towards my Course Building Goal. That is where my genius is and where I need to be most focused.
I will be adding others to my team so I can be free to work in the areas I do best. ?
It could be that you need to be adding to your team in order to hit your Breakthrough.
Or in contrast, firing someone who is zapping your energy or doesn’t own your vision.
Maybe you are feeling isolated and lonely because your support system is non-existent.
(Btw…I can assure you there are many like-minded business owners who can provide valuable support so you don’t have to “go it alone.” Join a professional networking or mastermind group. Support among entrepreneurs is empowering!)
Doubt may be another barrier in order to have a Breakthrough Year in 2018.
You may be doubting you are smart enough, creative enough, motivated enough, etc.
Doubt creeps in through your mind chatter and can defeat you before you know it.
It’s possible you need to replace the doubting thoughts with positive, affirmative thoughts that you greatly deserve in 2018.
So there it is, in a nut-shell! Amy Porterfield’s Powerful questions for a Breakthrough 2018.
I would love to hear all of your answers and how you are planning your Breakthrough.
